Each of our academies has a Local Governing Body that works closely with the Headteacher.

The LGBs have the following core functions:

Ensuring that the overarching Trust strategy, which is set by the Board of Directors, is implemented at academy level.

Ensuring accountability by:
– Monitoring progress towards targets
– Participating in the performance management of the Headteacher
– Contributing to school self-evaluation

Assisting and supporting the Board of Directors, Accounting Officer and Finance Director to fulfil their responsibilities by:
– Ensuring proper stewardship of funds, including regularity and propriety
– Ensuring economy, efficiency and effectiveness in the use of funds
– Proposing the budget
– Monitoring expenditure against budget

Engaging with stakeholders and raising funds for the school.
